 » Housewives (UK)  (No Wave)
 » Action Beat (UK)  (Experimental / Noise)
Started in 2004. Got started on in St Ettiene once.    The best thing we did was playing a show on a bridge on Christmas day 2005. Everything else is irrelevant. 
 » Kurws (PL)  (Free punk)

(the) Kurws formed in May 2008 as an unexpected result of a ping pong session. Since then they have pursued their own search, not so much in defined genres, but within the very foundations of rock, expression, and sound. It is a workshop where improvisation penetrates through composed material, a congealed form of the creation process. Armed with repetitions, recombinations, variations and contrasts, they frolic with memory and expectations. Post punk, krautrock, rock in opposition, funk, no wave - they present modes of playing, motives, and riffs we have heard time and time again in a totally different context, dissected from their original environment, placed side by side, used in a brand new manner, deconstructed and distilled.

 » The Psychotic Monks (FR)  (Psychedelic Rock)
"Life […] is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing”    Du bruit, de la fureur, une musique qui s'imprègne avant tout de pulsions de vie.  Contre l'idée du leader charismatique, le relai se passe entre eux, à la recherche constante d'un équilibre pris entre folie névrotique et mélancolie contemplative.  The Psychotic Monks s'expriment dans un chaos à la fois réfléchi et incontrôlé.    Une vie partagée entre leur studio où ils expérimentent et produisent eux même leurs disques et la route (60 dates en 2016, en passant par Rock en Seine et les Bars en Trans…). Le résultat donne des rencontres poétiques entre des murs de sons distordus inspirés par la clique de Ty Segall (Wand, Fuzz...), des univers absurdes et romantiques, empreints aux mots de Nick Cave ou a la vision de Wim Wenders, la complainte d'un Eliott Smith qui carbure au premier BRMC, ou encore une certaine idée des Floyd alchimistes.    Ils naviguent à bord de leur Nostromo, laissant toujours la place aux imprévus. Une manière de se perdre pour mieux se retrouver.
 » Milk TV   (Noise / No Wave)

This is the new milk group project, and logical continuation of "Frances' Foes" (Montreal Band) with one of the new members of Brussels, and another band name.

 » House of John Player (UK)  (Indie Pop / Lo-Fi)
House of John Player is the ongoing bedroom/lo-fi project of Dean Spencer – which has moved through guitars, keyboards, loop pedals, and songs of total charm… somewhere between Animal Collective, Durutti Column, Ariel Pink… - Allan Harrison (MCP) Since way back in '06, House of John Player has been lucky enough to share the stage with such fine bands as Quack Quack, Les Baigneurs, Action Beat, Gentle Friendly, Ponytail, Manatees, Chops, a.P.A.t.T, Jonquil, Picastro, David Thomas Broughton, Creeping Nobodies, Tigers!, Baby Venom, Nisennenmondai, Al Duvall and many mo'
